Our mooring at the port of St. Symphorien s/ Saône and the old mill house.
Fresh cherries along the path at the port.
Our mooring between lock 75 + 76 on the Canal du Rhone au Rhin.
The port is quiet and peaceful,
yet close to Dole + Dijon for parts and services
Herb garden on aft deck taking root.
Progress inside was S-L-O-W. We had to adjust to the slower work pace.
We bought a fridge and stove. Note no water, and step stool vs. stairs to enter.
A work mate from our TWA years in Boston visited us.
She was our first guest onboard JoLi'. What a trooper w/ no plumbing!
The port's painting raft took up semi-permanent residence next to JoLi'.
Electricity was from multiple extension cords. Water was the hose on aft deck.
What a job! First the entire hull had to be chipped and scraped.
Taking away all rust as best as possible. Then rust treatment had to be put on.
Remember this barge is 81 years old. (She looks like it's been that long...
...since a coat of paint had been put on the hull!) Note toilet in wheelhouse.
After all the prep work and anti-rust treatment, she was ready for paint.
It took 3L of green paint for each side of the hull.
